Well, I’m writing up a menu plan, but don’t know how well we’ll stick to it. My husband got started on a bathroom renovation project over the weekend. I won’t say it was unexpected, but it got started a lot earlier than we were planning due to a leaky pipe. So, we may be spending a lot of evenings making design plans and shopping at various stores trying to find what we need. I know my son would be happy for a trip to Burger King, but I keep trying to avoid it. I may have to give in to it this week. Here’s my tentative menu plan for this week.
Monday – Grilled Chicken
Mondays are always busy for us, so I love to start the week with easy cooking. We’ll be grilling chicken breasts and topping with cheese and avocado. Serving with corn-on-the-cob and green beans.
Tuesday – Shrimp
Cooking shrimp with butter, garlic, and green onions. Serving with rice noodles and broccoli.
Wednesday – Mexican Chicken Rice Bowls
I’ll be slow-cooking chicken to use in rice bowls with black beans, green chiles, cheddar, black olives and avocado. Maybe I’ll make some guacamole with the avocado.
Thursday – Leftovers
Any prepared foods left in the refrigerator come out for a pick-your-own-meal buffet.
Friday – Parmesan Tilapia
Serving with quinoa and asparagus.
Saturday – Chicken Enchiladas
I’ll use up the rest of the mexican chicken from Wednesday to make enchiladas. Serving with rice and a simple salad of chopped greens, cilantro, lime juice and tomatoes.
Sunday – Pizza
I found a Chebe Mix for Pizza Crust in the pantry this week. Time to bring it out. I’ll probably make a simple cheese pizza for the kids. On second thought maybe I’ll make something a little more exciting for the adults in the family and heat up Glutino pizzas for the kids.
For more gluten-free meals and recipes check out the GF Menu Swap, hosted this week by Sea at Book of Yum. She’s chosen pizza for the theme. Thanks to Cheryl at Gluten Free Goodness for continuing to organize the Gluten-Free Menu Swap.
